The greatest fishing trip I have ever been on and I got to share it with my dad and cousin. Thanks Shawn for making that happen, we had a great time and we caught lots of fish too! Will we be back? You bet!

“Fantastic fishing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

You will catch fish. You will catch a lot of fish and you'll have a great time doing it! Great guide and great hosts.
Three of us went on a charter. We caught salmon, halibut, ling cod, and sole. Everyone had a wonderful time.

“Great trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

My husband wanted to fish in Tofino but I wanted to see whales. So he chartered a boat and Sean, our skipper, agreed to try to make us both happy. My husband caught a 30+ pound halibut and other fish, so he was happy. We saw at least four gray whales, sea lions and otters, so I was happy. Then, on the way in, we saw a humpback whale breach. Just awesome. When we returned, Sean cleaned our fish and helped us get it packaged to take home. He was friendly, helpful, and ensured two people with disparate goals both had a great trip!

“Another great trip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Went up to Tofino for some salmon and halibut fishing on June 18 and 19. Just an absolutely great time on Ospray Charters. Limits of salmon and halibut for the three of us and as a bonus, too many whale spottings to count. Love the way Shawn Hillier constantly works to find the fish and changes gear in order to find out what the fish want. It's a long way from California, but worth it each year. Looking forward to fishing again in August.

“Outstanding Trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Incredible weather, all the right gear and a GREAT guide. Shawn was extremely hospitable, knowledgeable of the local area and very attentive to the fishing gear. He knew right where the fish were and made our trip a memorable family holiday for our boys that they will remember for many years to come. We caught our quota of Springs and a 12 pound Coho that was the biggest of the season so far. Great time had by all, we would highly recommend Shawn to anyone looking for a memorable fishing trip.
